mbot: Get rid of 4/3rds

If Panasonic made a GH5 with a fullframe sensor, it would solve the world's problems.

Crop mode? Sure, all you need is a stabilized 81MP FF sensor that does 60fps and 4k60p video. And after you design your sensor, you still need to figure out how to make FF and m4/3 lenses use the same lens mount without massive vignetting.

It wouldn't work with their lenses, silly.

SoundMix: iPhone X is the worst phone for durability. An all glass phone? Get real.

If you HAVE to keep it on a case, what is the point of making it look all fancy with glass? Might as well be utilitarian beige like the 90s PCs.

It's kind of a sick catch-22. You only truly need a case if the phone would look best without one.

Because it is not a flash. It's an LED flashlight(torch) that they shine in your face. Just like all phones.

Jeff Peterman: So, in reality, what is the difference between a photo score of 98, 99, 100, or 101. Probably nothing anyone will notice.

So It's kind of like Gold and Silver on DPR, then?

"We've collected some of our sample images with this handy little lens from years past into a single gallery – take a look."

ovlov: This is literally years old news.

The first line of text on this page is, "The Canon EF-M 22mm F2 is by no means a new lens."

CyeJoeBob: The Canon EOS M system doesn't have a lot of lenses, but the few they have are great. Especially the 22mm f2 and the 11-22mm. If they would give us a compact 35mm and 50mm, I would really consider to buy a Canon EOS M.

But unfortunatly a have the feeling, that if Canon is coming with a FF mirrorless camera, the lens support for the APS-C system will die, like it happened to the Sony APS-C E-Mount system.

If you want EOS M specific lenses, why do you want 35 and 50? Those work out to 56 and 80mm equivalent. I would think you'd want 31 and 53mm which with the 1.6x factor, give 50 and 85mm equivalent.

That's what they did with the 22mm (x1.6 = 35)

Bobthearch: I read the entire blog post and still don't understand what the name means.

Lum- prefix is latin for light, so I'm guessing it means skylight.

Dante Birchen: Why take pictures at all? Just tell the AI what to show you.

To be honest, we are already there. Unless it is a picture of a personal event, there's probably already better pictures of it on the internet than you will take.

Haim Hadar: Regardless of the impact on the photography market it is sad new for (at least most of) the 2500 people who lost their jobs.

Phones are selling about 10x the quantity that cameras sold at their short lived peak. There's no way they are making a billion smartphones with half the employees that made 100 million compact cameras. Not to mention, there are far more retail jobs selling phones (and service) than there ever was selling cameras.

You don't think smartphone companies have created a lot of jobs over the past few years?

Infared: LOL! $1000
I have 3 copies of my 8 year-old querty keyboard LG phone. LOL!
(thats right ..I can have cheap spares...no problem)..
Got the last new one for $30. New on eBay. My phone bill is $29 on Verizon.
I will never become one of you screen-starers.
I am always "present" wherever I go. ...although I find with the new tech...I might as well not be present, because non of you are. That's OK..I am comfortable with myself...and when I go for a hike or to the beach...I can just enjoy my environment...too bad you guys cannot. :-)
All of my cameras MFT and FF are totally up-to-date, though.
So.... shove that up your Facebook. :-)
Now ...I think I will buy that new lens with the $970 that I have available.

With a personality like that, it is fortunate that you are comfortable with yourself.

tkbslc: I'm surprised they still had a factory for compact cameras for this long. That's a dead market that is never coming back. Might as well keep a walkman factory running.

A little more HiFi than my Walkman. Although mine did have auto reverse and bass boost!
